King Weather - [first piece]

Full review to follow. Confined to a twenty minute mini-set, percussionist D. Alex Meeks and Steve Ward gave a sort of sketchbook version of King Weather. Given time to stretch out, they prefer to let ideas build up and unpack themselves a little more fully, but this still showed off the ingenious layering that Ward can achieve with just a trombone and a basic loop pedal. You can see them at The Tranzac on the last Sunday of every month — and rumour has it there'll be some other cool opportunities to hear them otherwise.
